Do you ever get the large bulk spools? Have a friend who picks it up that way, but he changes out his reels weekly during the seasonal salmon runs.Johnny wrote:I just picked up a couple of spools of Berkley Big Game 20# Neon Green.
so after a good cleaning, all the saltwater reels will get a new spool
of line for the season. We get so many hangups on the rocks that some spools
have an assortment of different weight sizes as well as braid/mono mixture.
if the weather is nice through the winter, we will do the same thing next year.
not changing out due to the age of the line, but, rather the loss of the original line.
the freshwater spools are the same way. changed out due to wear and tear, not age.
Tight Lines, calm seas and Fair Winds -
to prevent thread drift, photos of yesterdays catch are in the "Fishing Reports" section.
I'm the same way as you. I get enough snags & twists that I need to change out line long before age becomes a factor.
